Frame Builder

Ever walked into a bicycle shop and wondered what bicycle you should be riding?  We've all been there before, but when $ isn't much of an issue, the best place to start is a custom bicycle frame builder.  Glen Thompson started the Texas Custom Bicycle Show over 7 years ago, now the Texas Bicycle and Beer Expo.  He and fellow builders are an aging breed of very knowledgeable bicycle aficionados who know the difference between quality bicycles and crap from overseas.  

DalTex is located right here in Dallas, TX and will custom fit, design and build your very own bicycle.  Like all frame builders, the craftsmanship is unmatched by any large manufactured bicycle from overseas.  This is the real deal steel baby.  The best thin walled steel from Italy and the United States is used on all frames.  Currently prices start at $4,600 for Campagnolo Chorus equipped custom road bike and go up $15,000+ for a Dura-Ace Di2 equipped stainless steel road with polished tubes & lugs, ENVE cockpit, race quality wheels, and/or full custom paint.
